Watercolor in silk
In particular, silk organza is used as a material, something that provides an extra dimension because of the silk’s translucency. The works are comprised of colored rectangular silk sheets. Hanging from the ceiling with a certain distance between the sheets, they take the form of three-dimensional objects in the room. Abstract shapes in the surfaces, almost equal and rhythmic are created through the use of color pigments floating in the water.

The silk is transparent. By more sheets being mounted with a certain distance in between, the space between the sheets is activated when we look through them, so that the forms in the sheets give the impression of a three-dimensional volume of color, as if the color receives a body.

The work defines the room through its dimensions and becomes something one physically relates to.
